I have lived free.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

I'm still reading, even though I've been lame at commenting. I'll do better. My posts are dead in the comment area too, but then again I'm not posting that often either. I'm totally in a blog rut.
